MAME (an acronym of Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator) is an emulator application designed to recreate the hardware of arcade game systems in software on modern personal computers and other platforms. The intention is to preserve gaming history by preventing vintage games from being lost or forgotten. The aim of MAME is to be a reference to the inner workings of the emulated arcade machines; the ability to actually play the games is considered "a nice side effect".
This way you can download any individual files you may need without having to pull the entire blob.

this is meh because I dont mame. timeouts and drops and the like can be avoided. you are probably using your browser's shitty manager. forgetabout it. use wget or wput. available by default on most open source os-es. available for windows but you have to look for it. my main box is fedora. you may have to install a few packages. can we have some more chud? your missing some systems and the torrents are very lacky.
